End Kingspan sponsorship of Ulster Rugby
End sponsorship deal with Kingspan and rename Kingspan stadium.
Why is this important?
Kingspan, an Irish company based in Cavan, manufactured Grenfell Tower’s combustible insulation.
During the Grenfell Inquiry into the tower block fire which killed 72 people in 2017, a former executive said that the firm was involved in a “deliberate and calculated deceit”, which involved marketing the product without solid test evidence. The inquiry has also heard that Kingspan rigged tests and hired lobbyists after the disaster to try to persuade MPs that rival non-combustible products might be no less dangerous.
Ulster Rugby should play no part in whitewashing Kingspan's image and must terminate it's sponsorship relationship and rename the stadium.
